Sloppy Joes are a favorite of adults and kids. I deviated from the traditional recipe by adding a little Southwestern spiciness. —Geraldine Saucier, Albuquerque, New Mexico

"Very good! I doubled except only 1 can chilies, 1 1/2 c ketchup, no red pepper flakes, and I threw in a couple tablespoons of my taco seasoning. I will be making these again."

"I thought this recipe was very good. I added cilantro, used pork instead of beef, and cut down on the ketchup, but that was all just based on what we had--worked out great."

"This is the best sloppy joe recipe I have ever had! We love spicy in our family and this has just the right amount! Even my 8 year old son loved them and he usually doesn't eat sloppy joes!"

"These are by far the best sloppy joes I have ever had and my new favorite recipe. For my personal tastes I use dry minced onion and leave out the green chilies but for a crowd I do it as written."

"Loved this new way to make sloppy joes. I made a few changes. I used 3/4 cup ketchup instead of a full cup and extra lean ground beef. I imagine turkey would be good too. Delicious."
